To be a Christian is to be a warrior.

The good soldier of Jesus Christ must not expect to find ease in this world: it is a battle-field.

Neither must he reckon upon the friendship of the world; for that would be enmity against God.

His occupation is war.

There will be no progress of God's kingdom…

                                                                                                against satan’s kingdom…


Their belief system must be confronted,
their wicked hearts must be CONFRONTED and EXPOSED.

This will always bring OPPOSITION.
It will always bring a BACKLASH.
It will always bring PERSECUTION.

Strongholds in the sinners heart and mind must be…


by the truth of the WORD of GOD
in the Power of the HOLY GHOST.

Sinners must be AWAKENED before they can be CONVICTED
and must be CONVICTED before they can be CONVERTED.
Before there can be building and planting
there must be…

 rooting up,
tearing down,
pulling up,
throwing down…

See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms,
to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down,
to build, and to plant.
Jeremiah 1:10


When LIGHT meets face to face with DARKNESS…
There will always be CONFRONTATION.

When TRUTH  exposes LIES and DECEPTION…
There will always be CONFRONTATION.

When  HOLINESS collides with UNGODLINESS…
There will always be CONFRONTATION.

When the POWER of GOD meets the PRIDE of MAN…
There will always be CONFRONTATION.

When the SAINTS of GOD assail the kingdom of DARKNESS…
There will always be CONFRONTATION.

The SOLDIERS of the CROSS will not advance the battle…


Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation,
it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you
that ye should EARNESTLY CONTEND for the faith
which was once delivered unto the saints.
Jude 1:3


Persuading. Contending. Disputing.

And Stephen, full of faith and power,
did great wonders and miracles among the people.
Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist
the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.
Acts 6:8-10

And he [Paul] went into the synagogue, and spake boldly
for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things
concerning the kingdom of God.  Acts 19:8

But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he [Paul] departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus. And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.  Acts 19:9-10

Opposition. Persecution. Reproach.

But Peter and John answered and said unto them,
Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.

So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.
Acts 4:19-21

And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone,
they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,
And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews,
do exceedingly trouble our city, And teach customs,
which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.

And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:  Acts 16:19-23

Saints of GOD, YOU have a noble calling…

YOU must, without hesitation, attempt to reconcile…

Hostile, stiffnecked, unrepentant  REBELS

This task requires a courageous HEART that is steadfast with God,
a LIFE that is marked by FAITH and HOLINESS
and GODLY CHARACTER tried by the fires of anguish and affliction.

GOD has entrusted YOU with a message of reconciliation…
HE expects YOU to deliver that message…

All of heaven is waiting upon it.

What are YOU going to DO about it?

Need more exhortation?  Start here…

This requires you to get your nose in your Bible and on your face before a holy God crying out, beseeching, petitioning, supplicating, seeking and asking Him for His power, grace, wisdom and anointing ...

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Acts 26:18

Inspired by “Confrontation” by Brother Micah Armstrong.
